There is no denying that there’s something special about this Boston Bruins team.
We’re not saying that the Bruins are going to win the Stanley Cup because there is a ton that could happen between now and the late spring/summer when the playoffs will get going for the Black and Gold. So those kinds of grand prognostications will have to wait a while until we’ve seen more than a month with this group of players, and we get a look at whatever Boston Bruins GM Don Sweeney can get done at the trade deadline.
It seems undeniably clear at this point that the Bruins are going to need established, top-4 help on the left side of their defense with all three players (Matt Grzelcyk, Jakub Zboril and Jeremy Lauzon) that started the season now out with injuries.
But the B’s showed in Sunday night’s 7-3 outdoor win over the Philadelphia Flyers at Lake Tahoe that there is a tacit feeling that something special is brewing with these Bruins. There was certainly something special about the Bruins and Flyers playing by the lake in a picturesque setting with mountains in the background, and a breathtaking sunset above as they played the final two periods.
